Olympian Sandi Morris hosted the first ever “Liberty Bridge Jump-off” competition in downtown Greenville, along with the Greenville Track Club. A full regulation long jump and pole vault arena was set up on Main Street near Falls Park. Eight women competed in the pole vault event and Sandi Morris competed at 15 feet, 11 inches (4.85 Meters)! She didn’t quite set a new world record but it was a great event overall.

Sandi Morris grew up in Greenville and this is her first pole vault competition in Greenville since high school.

This boxcar artwork was painted by art students of Greer High School, and is located in downtown Greer. It includes scenes around Greer, and the boxcar represents Greer as a train transportation hub, especially since the Inland Port of Greer has opened.
